We carry out the valuation of assets related to the acquisition and recovery of non-performing loans (NPL), arbitrations and processes through the utilization of usual economic-financial valuation methodologies or econometric estimation methods of compensations to be received.

We study the effects of unfair practices on international trade, notably dumping and subsidies. We analyze how these policies impact the market, the industry, and the domestic consumer, supporting the application of trade defense instruments according to the fundamentals of the World Trade Organization (WTO):
